Haven House Children’s Hospice has launched a new campaign for Ramadan to strengthen its links with Muslim communities.

To coincide with the holy month (which runs from the middle of May to the middle of June), the charity has written to more than 60 mosques across north and north east London, west Essex and east Hertfordshire, asking for their support.

Last year Haven House, High Road, Woodford Green, supported 353 children and young people and approximately one-third came from Muslim families.

Trustee Mohamed Omer, who is also a board member of the Gardens of Peace Muslim Cemetery in Hainault, said: “We have made progress in reaching out to Muslim communities in recent years, but we want to do even more to strengthen our relationships with local mosques who can help support our families by holding regular collections and raising awareness of our work.”
